Three VU-professors awarded Highly Cited Researcher 2020

26 November 2020
Each year, Clarivate identifies the world’s most influential researchers ─ the select few who have been most frequently cited by their peers over the last decade. In 2020, fewer than 6,200, or about 0.1%, of the world's researchers, in 21 research fields and across multiple fields, have earned this exclusive distinction.

Clinical Psychology professors Heleen Riper and Pim Cuijpers and Clinical Child & Family Studies professor Marian Bakermans-Kranenburg are amongst the most frequently cited by their peers this year. Their exceptional research influence, demonstrated by the production of multiple highly-cited papers that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and year in the Web of Science. Quote Heleen and Pim: “We are very happy that our work is recognized by our international fellow researchers both within the domains of psychology/psychiatry and the cross-borders of these such as computer science, AI, health economics and implementation.”
